In an exclusive interview with Computerworld Philippines in January, Salalima said that the government will establish broadband infrastructures from the northern to the southern parts of the country. He added that implementing the NBP will likely to cost between PHP 77 billion to PHP 199 billion, without existing cables or components to use. It will thus take three to four years to be fully implemented.

The Pipol Konek or the Free Wi-Fi Internet Access in Public Places (FWPP) project is the rebrand of the Juan Konek. This aims to provide internet service to over 13,000 public places across 145 cities and 1,489 municipalities in the country.

Lastly, the National Government Portal will serve as a single website for all government information, transaction and services.
